    Fiat To Name The X-Large 500 The 500L

    Fiat has finally come up with a name for their new five-door 500 - the 500L. The new 500L will make its official debut at March’s Geneva Motor Show.

    The 500L will be wider and about 2.4 inches longer than the regular the 500. That’s due to the 500L being based on Fiat’s Punto subcompact..

    The 500L will be offered in two models; a five-seat and seven-seat model. The U.S. will get the five-seat model only.

    Fiat will begin sales of the 500L in Europe beginning in July. The U.S. sales will begin sometime next year.

    Yup, after the classic Dodge. :smilewide:

    Uh, no...the classic Fiat 600, like the Multipla..


    or the regular 600, which was the 500's 'big' brother..


    I wonder if the 5 seat version will be a variation of the new 3rd gen Panda but w/ 500 styling cues up front...

    Boy FIAT has not listened or woken up. They are BROKEN, Their cars suck, are too small and Butt Ugly! The dealership by my house has tons of 500's and I rarely see anyone at the dealership. In fact this weekend, they moved jeeps and dodges into the front line facing the road and moved all the FIATs back.

    FIAT has not learned from their last visit to America and they still do not have Auto's that appeal to Americans. The Euro Coffin on wheels will not sell here.

    If they want to have a Coffin on wheels, then they have to at least make it a pretty one or at least pretty in the eyes of the Tree huggers.
